Aside from your dress, your makeup and your veil, your guests' eyes will also be drawn to the item or the object you're carrying: your wedding bouquet. Your maid of honor and your bridesmaids will also be carrying their own bouquets, but there's no disputing that your bouquet has to be the most elegant bouquet out of the bunch.
An elegant and simple wedding bouquet is the best accessory to complement your radiant smile and your stylish gown. Remember, your bouquet does not have to be too ornate or over the top. In fact, you want to avoid having a flashy bouquet, as the last thing you need is an accessory that takes the attention away from your wedding dress and the rest of your gorgeous form.
Choosing your wedding bouquet is just as important as picking out your fabulous wedding shoes and your fashionable wedding dress. When picking out your wedding bouquet, you may end up a little confused by all the options that will be presented to you.
Fresh or Silk?
You might think that all wedding bouquets are made from fresh flowers, but you may be surprised to find that a number of modern brides opt for the synthetic alternative.
Silk wedding bouquets may not be as authentic as a real flower bouquet, but these synthetic flowers are perfect for brides who are allergic to the scent of actual flowers. These blooms are also incredibly realistic, making it almost impossible to tell that the flowers are fake from a distance.
Another advantage of the silk wedding bouquet is that they are available any time of the year. In short, you will not have to worry about your chosen flower being out of season or impossible to find. You can even keep these blooms on display for years and years, particularly because they will not wither and die. They're there to be passed on from one generation to another, provided of course that you take the time to wipe them clean.
Yet, despite the wonderful points of the silk wedding bouquet, it seems as if fresh flowers or real flower bouquets are still the main choice for most modern brides. To be fair to the genuine and fresh bouquet, real flowers have a unique texture, scent and feel that makes their expensive prices and seasonal growth almost insignificant for most brides.
If you want to preserve your withering blooms a day or two after the wedding, you can procure bridal bouquet preservation services, or you can create breathtakingly beautiful pressed flower arrangements with them.
